driving innovation

Barry McGookin, General Manager of Innovation, Food Innovation Australia

Innovation and getting an idea to market is not linear. What you chose and pursue is a mix of capabilities, availability, opportunity, vision, appetite for risk and your values. Each journey is different but there are some pieces of the idea to market puzzle that everyone has to walk through.

In addition, while many focus on products and processes there are more places within a business that can be considered for innovation. This short session will take you through some simple tools to think about the idea to market journey and where else within your business you might consider innovating.
